This, for me, was a light-hearted musical with a message for us all, especially us dreamers.
At first I was cringing, just a little, seeing this as a cheesy attempt at a modern day Grease, but it soon had me hooked and took a serious look at what happens when you follow your dreams. On top of this, there are two people, in a relationship, each with their own dreams to follow; each going in different directions, bringing on that heart-breaking conversation about whether one of them gives up their dreams or whether they go their separate ways.
There are many times in my life I’ve put aside my dream for my relationship; none of which have lasted.
La La Land, for me, told me never to give up on my dreams. I can assure you, I never will.
